Sambazon Supergreens Revolution Organic Açai Smoothie

The Sambazon Supergreens Revolution Organic Açai Smoothie has more grass types than your average golf course and corner nickelbag dealer have combined. Each bottle contains wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass, alfalfa, sprulina, and chlorella. It’s been awhile since bullies made me eat grass in grade school, so I didn’t fully remember what it tasted like, but after drinking this smoothie, it’s slowly coming back to me.

Fortunately, the smoothie doesn’t just contain grass, because that would be the shittiest smoothie ever. It also has apple juice, grape juice, bananas, mangos, and the popular açai berry. Much like how Timbaland can make a song sound much better, these fruits and fruit juices made the grass taste better, although not as good as I hoped.

If you’ve ever had a bad raisin, you have an idea of what the Sambazon Supergreens Revolution Organic Açai Smoothie tastes like. It was pretty disgusting when I first drank it, but the more I drank, the better it got. It’s the same thing with the movie Battlefield Earth. If you take a shot every time John Travolta overacts, within ten minutes the movie will be on the same level as Gigli.

The taste of this maroon-colored beverage will make most people gag, and so will most beverages described as tasting like a “bad raisin,” but I have a trick that you can use to hopefully make it more tolerable. All you have to do is keep telling yourself how healthy the all grass and Açai berries are for you. It’s like the mental equivalent of pinching your nose to endure its taste. But if the sight or taste of this doesn’t get to you, perhaps its smell or sludge-like consistency will.

Despite how bad I’m talking about it, I have to say that I actually like the Sambazon Supergreens Revolution Organic Açai Smoothie. It’s a food with a silver lining. I think because there are so many things in it that are good for you that they negate all the things that make it disgusting. It has antioxidants, healthy omega fats, fiber, and a whole lot of phytonutrients, all of which will decrease the effects of free radicals and probably make Britney Spears’ new single tolerable for about three seconds.

Besides, isn’t that the rule of most healthy foods? They may not taste good, but they are good for you–except iceberg lettuce and orchids used as garnish. I also think it tastes a little bit better than its competitor, the equally disturbing Odwalla Superfood, although the Sambazon smoothie has more calories, less potassium, less Vitamin C, and a little more sugar.

It maybe super healthy, tastes all right, and smells bad, but perhaps the least known fact about the Sambazon Supergreens Revolution Organic Açai Smoothie is that it may get you a ride if you need a lift someday, because you know what they say:

Ass, gas, or grass. Nobody rides for free.

  1. I think I must be getting old. More and more, when I see the products you review, I’m like, what the hell is that? Oh well. Maybe I’m just not into health food. This one sure sounds like an expensive smoothie, though.

  2. If it has “supergreens” in it, why didn’t they make it a green-colored beverage? As it is now, I can’t decide if it looks like blueberry diarrhea or chunky blueberry barf…

  3. Chuck – Anything organic is expensive. I’m organic too, so if I ever get put up for auction for a date for a worthy cause, I think I’ll bring in $10.

    Molly – The Odwalla Superfood is frozen spinach green. Blech! I think this one has a better color, although I do agree it should’ve been green. It would make it even more disgusting.

  4. I watched the video…sludge-like indeed! Sadly, it reminds me of the Myoplex meal replacement shakes I drink 3 times a day.

    I’ll do you one better, though. This one may look like ‘blueberry barf’ (haha!), but mine is a thick, sludgy brown, and if mixed improperly, has a healthy smattering of dark brown chunks…

    But hey, it’s healthy!

  5. Don’t be dissin’ the Superfood. It’s a tasty beverage with a consistency that makes you feel like each healthy fruit is slowly sliding down your throat.

  6. Trader Joe’s has a super green smoothie thing full of all kinds of grassiness. It tastes like apple juice, but it doesn’t have that super berry in it. Oh, are there Trader Joe’s in Hawaii?

  7. I’ll try it if it will make Britney go away?

    I’ve actually never seen the smoothie before.
    Or Britney’s talent for that matter.

  8. I drink those all the time. Mine looked more brown though… To me it just tasted like dried fruit, but it looked like shit. Good combo there.

  9. When I first read the list of grasses and read “chlorella,” I mistakenly thought you meant cholera.
    Everything but the kitchen sink full of cholera…

  10. Oh. My. Gosh. You almost had me sold (seems pretty healthy and heaven knows I need it) until I watched that video. It reminded me of the last time I got incredibly drunk and what happened after my stomach revolted on me. Unless that will make me shed my extra 500 pounds in 2 months, I won’t be trying that, thank you.

  11. Better than Odwalla’s or Trader Joe’s: If you can find Naked Juice, their Green Machine smoothie-type drink tastes like a kiwi-banana lovefest and has all the barley grass, wheat grasse, spirulina, etc in it, even broccoli. It’s nice and thick and yummy.

  12. I am such a nerd, I actually knew what phytonutrients were without using the link.
    That said, YUK! good for you or not, if Im gonna eat grass,.. it will come in a different container!

  13. That looks like regurgitated Pepto Bismol. Like the Superfood craze, I can’t get into this.

  14. i actually don’t mind straight wheatgrass shots, because it’s gone in a flash , but that just looks foul. there are tastier ways to get your nutrients. like in-n-out burger! 😉

  15. nat – I’m pretty sure it’s not poi, because this tastes much better than poi.

    Domino – I hate dark brown chunks, because you know they’re dry inside and if you touch it, it pops and powder flies up.

    Cory – I actually like Superfood too and other Odwalla smoothies. I think this one is cheaper too.

    Webmiztris – What if you put a paper bag over it?

    George – Poor Strawberry Shortcake! She should see a gastrointestinal specialist.

    miss mle – Nope, no Trader Joe’s. Soon to have Whole Foods, which probably has something like this, but more expensive.

    Suzanne – If I don’t have to listen to her or look at her crotch again, everything will be all right.

    The Lazy Canadian – Make them chug it via beer bong…that would be funnier.

    Liz – This bottle is sexier. Look at those curves! The Superfood bottle is waif supermodel flat.

    Drew Barnard – If it had more S’s, it would make a wonderful tongue twister.

    Hunter – Just like cheap prostitutes, they may not look good, but the job gets done.

  16. mfg – I would’ve preferred Cinderella or Salt-N-Pepa’s Spinderella.

    Clevegal42 – Did you eat before you got drunk? Don’t get drunk on an empty stomach. This has been a public service announcement.

    Renee – I enjoy many things that are naked. I think I shall enjoy this too.

    bikerbabeee – In brownies? 😉

    Brie – Regurgitated Pepto Bismol is pinker.

    miss petite america – I’ve had a few wheat grass shots at Jamba Juice. Thank goodness for the orange wedge they give you. Mmm…In-N-Out burger.

  17. ultradave – DON’T!!! Your body will be confused by the combination of healthy and unhealthy!!! You may die!!! DON’T DO IT!!!
